So naturally when I found out I was pregnant I started looking for ways to get my fur babies ready for my human baby. I read a ton of blog posts, books and looked for any advice on the subject.

The Easiest Dog Cake You Will Ever Make

It happened again, the 4th of July snuck up on me, and I forgot to make a birthday cake for my oldest pup. I know I’m a terrible mother. Oh well. After complaining to my husband that I had forgotten he reminded me that I could still make her one. Which of course I hadn’t considered. But it had to be simple. We don’t have air conditioning right now and I couldn’t bear to sit in the kitchen with the oven on. So I came up with what is so far my favorite dog cake yet.

This cooling mat is sooo easy my dogs could probably do it themselves. The best part is That I made it using things I already have around the house. Continue reading “DIY Doggie Cooling Mat”

Birthday Cake Your Pups will Howl For

 

Ever since I brought my first puppy home, I have been known as the crazy dog lady. I love to spoil my pups and I think they enjoy it as well. Pair that with my love of birthdays and you have a doggie birthday party. And what do you need at a birthday party? A birthday cake, of course. For Indi’s First Birthday, hubby and I were selling fireworks (She was born on the fourth of july). So her cake was unimpressive. We didn’t get to give her a proper celebration until she was four, so we did it up right. Since then I’ve come up with the perfect pup-cake recipe that my dogs really love.  Continue reading “Birthday Cake Your Pups will Howl For”

The Inside Scoop On Dog Food

We first brought home our tiny bulldog puppy, determined to do everything exactly right. Starting with her food. So we bought her the most expensive dry food in the store and were sure we were making the right decision. Then life kicked in and we couldn’t afford to spend as much on her food. Now it was time to do some research and decide what would be the second best. Turns out after doing some digging, even the crazy expensive dog food wasn’t necessarily what was best for her.
